Derivative Introduction (13:17)
The derivative is introduced and several examples are worked through. The difference between average and instantaneous velocity is demonstrated on a graph. The derivative of a power function rule is worked through. Graphs are used to demonstrate what a derivative is. This is an AP Physics C: Mechanics topic.
